Just put it in my queue

A couple of nights ago I signed up for a Netflix account. Tired of bringing home DVDs from the library only to find them full of scratches, I have been considering joining for a long time. But I wanted to wait until the weather got cold so I could gauge if it would really be worth our money. A friend of mine—who loves Netflix—sent me an email for a month free trial instead of the standard two weeks. It expired on October 31. So Halloween night after I put G-tot to bed I signed up.

We ended up watching Twilight Zone: The Movie as our first flick. A classic that I hadn’t seen in years. A film that I did not realize Nancy Cartwright played the sister in the story about the kid who controls everyone with his mind. Nancy Cartwright—the voice of Bart Simpson. Then we watched My Name is Bruce a spoof about Bruce Campbell. Staring Bruce Campbell. Total cheese. Last night we watched Day of the Dead—Steve Miner’s 2008 adaptation of of Romero’s classic. Holy hell those zombies moved fast in that one. Creepy. I expect our first DVDs soon—Flight of the Conchords: Season 1, a Veggie Tales movie for G-tot, and Drag me to Hell. Until then I’m digging the instant streaming option. So many choices.

And now I’m addicted to adding things to the queue. I can’t stop. It’s sick. The way they keep recommending movies is fantastic. Oh yeah, that one. And this one. Oh I haven’t seen that in years. Click. Click. Click. Add to queue. Add to queue. Add to queue.

Help…

    I love it, too! I will just sit there and add every possible thing I can think of sometimes; then later on (like a year later) a movie gets delivered and I’m like, “Why the HELL did I want this again?!” But that’s part of the fun. Plus I just love the word ‘queue’ so much… all those vowels.
    GREAT movie choices, by the way. I’ve seen everything but the Veggie Tales thing. And I will tell you that Drag Me to Hell is AWESOME.

    Drag Me to Hell was so funny! And disgusting. JQ said of the main girl, “She did the slow turn like 5 times and had stuff sprayed into her mouth at least 8 times!” It just reeked of Sam Rami. Good stuff.

    The friends section was down the first couple times I looked at it. I will definitely connect with you once it’s fixed.

    I had a bug that didn’t allow me to add friends. I ended up having to call them. They told me that it happened with some accounts. You may want to see if someone can add you first. I’d be a Netflix friend with you if you want. :D

    Hmm…I wonder if they don’t let you access that feature during your trial period?

    No, it’s actually a glitch with certain accounts. When I finally called them about it, they said I should have had access even during my trial period.

    I sent you my info!

  • I had the same problem when I signed up. I kept adding stuff and adding stuff…I think I still have about 500 moves in the instant and DVD queues.

    You did see there were two of them, right? I found that a day later.

    You mean the DVD versus the Instant queues?

  • I love Netflix. Unfortunately with us needing to cut back we had to drop it. We just were not watching enough to justify the expense. Hopefully we will be able to sign up again soon.
